DeAgostini book and parts

DeAgostini parts oneThis replica of Luke Skywalkers X-Wing from A New Hope comes complete with incredible detail inside and out, and the finished model has a huge wingspan of 65 cm.  The amazing realism of the DeAgostini X-Wing is further enhanced by light up thrusters, cannons and cockpit controls. In the first four issues you receive parts for an R2-D2 which lights up and turns his head when inserted into the Astromech socket.  As if that wasn’t enough, the S-Foils (or wings, if you prefer) are motorised and open and close via a remote control.

Each issue comes with a selection of parts, and a magazine detailing everything from McQuarries artwork and design process to Colin Cantwells creation of the models used for A New Hope.  The cinematography and behind the scenes information as well as in-universe pilot biography’s sit nicely alongside step by step building instructions and nice clear images.
